Rasputin: The Car That Never Gives Up. — This was my first car and still is. I trust it completely and it doesn't owe me a thing. Great gas mileage in the summer, a complete tank in the winter. Fits 5 very comfortably. I've taken it on a few road trips. Bought it with 139,000 miles and its at 166,xxx and counting.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Small, spacious, fun to drive, reliable as heck, cheap to fix, unbeatable in the snow. 35mpg

Cons: Slow, Had to fix many problems to get it running when i bought it. Body roll like crazy, Road noise is audible. Bumpy at times

Excellent Car For Getting Back On One's Feet — The car was very reliable for a 17-year old car, and actually not bad for any car. It had good appearance except for the usual rear rocker panel rust spots. The air conditioner had gone home, but what to expect. It handled very well - road holding was especially good. Performance was what to expect from an '80's small car - modest. Use the low gears uphill and merging on highways and you should be okay. If you get one in good condition for a low price (you don't see many now) it might be worth your while.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great handling once moving, very comfortable front seats, very reliable and economical, cargo space good for a small car. Very well built to be available when I bought it.

Cons: Performance was fair at best, but that's not surprising for a small car. It was a little expensive for its age, but then, it's a Honda Civic...

87 — Braking is oosam, acceleration is not much admirable. Car is very durable, but the problem which occurs often is in steering and leakage of engine oil from oil chamber. Well, the car from exterior looks like a hot 30 year lady , very eye catching. Interior is also quite innovative. Gives mileage in a liter of around 10 kms, its just a 1200 cc engine, but the mileage it gives is not fair due 2 its carburator engine. The car have a very good handling, its a front wheel drive engine but you can drift this car better than many rear wheel drive engines.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Its cutting edge shape

Cons: You cant find its spare parts easily

Car Three — Another blue car, reminiscent of the ole' pinto. Huge doors and great hatchback. Ran great. 4 or 5 speed. Had to part with it when I had my daughter. NOT a car to get a carseat into the back easily.

Pros: Ran great

Cons: low to the ground, 2 door

Civic Gl 1998 — The Civic is fun to drive and holds the road quite well, depending on the tyres that are fitted. Fuel consumption is reasonable for a spotrty motor. The GL comes with electric sunroof, electric windows and it's styling looks way ahead of its time.

Pros: Japanese build quality

Cons: Expensive on parts
